LIZZIE is Rage! Sex! Betrayal! BLOODY MURDER!
A True Crime Punk Rock Musical.
Lizzie The Musical explores the life of Lizzie Borden, who was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe in the late summer of 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts. The musical delves into her complex psyche and speculates on the motivations she may have had: loss of inheritance, history of sexual abuse, oppression, and madness.
Lizzie, along with her older sister Emma, maid Bridget, and neighbour Alice, bring to life the infamous story supported on stage by an all-female band.
Lizzie The Musical premiered in New York in 2009 at The Living Theatre, and received its London premiere in 2017 at the Greenwich Theatre with the Danish production. This new production will be the first UK built version of the show and the first UK tour.
The perfect show for any fan of true crime, horror and of course Musicals!
Lizzie The Musical is on stage at Hope Mill Theatre on September 1st - 30th 2023.
